Well, at least they’re new to me. I always carry around a bottle of Angostura and Peychaud’s, as well as my favorite Fee Brothers bitter of the moment. But I just got some new additions from Cocktail Kingdom! As you can see in the sunny picture below, I’ve recently added Dandelion and Burdock bitters from the UK and Bittermens Grapefruit bitters made with noble hops.
The Dandelion and Burdock bitters recommends a tequila cocktail as a starting point and I think that’s probably where I’ll start. They have a nice fennel undertone and I think tequila would work, or maybe a spicier mezcal.
The grapefruit bitters will probably begin in a gin cocktail for me, as the spiciness of the hops balances the grapefruit well and I think it would play well with a little juniper. Recipes will follow soon.
Sorry about the picture quality. In the excitement of the moment I just snapped some photos with my cell phone (a respectable Mytouch Fender 3g, FYI).
